Hope Eller is okay, that was ugly. The hit was clean though. No headshot, no elevating elbows/arm, no leaving of the feet. On top of that he had the puck.
Don't blame the officials as they have a split second decision and the hit was so hard, your instant reaction is probably that it was bad. He got five and a game which hind sight says was overkill. No suspension.
And I am cheering for the Habs in this one.
on a side note the Ottawa Sun
should be ashamed of their headline and pic of Eller.
